Dublin North Central
Number of seats: 3
This loses a seat since 2002 when Fianna Fail won two (Sean Haughey and Ivor Callely), Fine Gael one (Richard Bruton) and Finian McGrath (Ind) took the fourth. Fianna Fail in danger of losing one seat (probably Ivor Callely's) and Finian McGrath's seat may also be in jeopardy.
Prediction: FF 2; FG 1.
Best candidate: Richard Bruton (FG)
Weakest link: Ivor Callely (FF)
In the long grass: Bronwen Maher (GP)
